It's more than just a day of picking up garbage or planting trees & flowers. It's a reminder that Earth Day is actually a state of mind and a lifestyle.
Those three R's - reduce, reuse, recycle - are a daily practice. Learning where our food not only comes from but how it is grown, choosing food that isn't grown with chemicals, and not using chemicals in our own gardens or those we grow for others, takes those daily practices to another level. There are many others ways, so start with you, your family and home. The ripple affect will reach wider than you can imagine. And so on, and so on, and so on.
Then Earth Day becomes a state of mind and a lifestyle, not just a day. That's something we can all benefit from.
